It’s not every day you come across an MR2 and we ask ourselves, why? From its inception in the 80’s, the MR2 was a very good compact car in terms of performance and handling. With the mid mounted engine and lightweight chassis the car was very nimble. It was definitely a hit. The twin-cam motor, mid-ship layout at an affordable price was all that was needed to bring the masses. This was also during the time when Ferraris and Porsches had similarly designed cars albeit they were in a higher class. These days though, enthusiasts prefer the AE86, leaving the MR2 as the unsung hero.
It’s not what you call “Hellaflush” but the offset is damn well spot-on!
Don’t think for a minute that this is the last we shall see of this MR2. Plans are already in play for a 4th Generation 3SGTE Engine swap and quite possibly, a GT28 RS Turbo kit. Oh yes, we will definitely be looking forward to it!
